Brazilian Butt Lift Connecticut
BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT- an increasing popular procedure. The procedure entails first performing liposuction of other parts of the body, typically the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, love handles and arms. The fat is then processed through a number of steps removing the fluid and non viable cells, and injection the pure live fat cells into the buttock region to augment the buttock.
The first stage of liposuction contours the buttock region at the same time providing the fat for the augmentation. Most patients feel that the buttock has lost definition which is common with pregnancy, weight loss, and some genetic pre-disposition and looks large but not round and full. By making the love handles and outer thigh region smaller and more shapely it also defines the buttock region. When the fat is then injecting properly, it creates a round full buttock. A patient must have sufficient fat from the other areas of the body to fill the buttock.
The process of preparing the fat, entails decanting the fat to allow the fluid to separate, then using a centrifuge to further spin out the fluid and non viable cells. The remaining pure fat is then carefully placed into different areas of the buttock and at different levels within the buttock to ensure long term survival of the fat cells.
The procedure lasts approximately 2 hours, and maybe performed under sedation or light general depending on exactly what is planned. The scars are small liposuction sized openings less than a quarter of an inch each. Typically about a five day recovery is indicated with minimal sitting during that time. Discomfort is minimal. Full activities may be resumed in about 1 month.
The procedure may be performed at the same time as other procedures such as abdominoplasty. I do not perform buttock augmentation with implants as the complication rate is higher than I am comfortable with.
